Malignant acrospiroma occurs very rarely and is found more commonly over face and extremities. We present the case of malignant acrospiroma of chest wall located behind the posterior axillary fold in subcutaneous plane without any axillary lymphadenopathy. Wide local excision of the mass was done which recurred in axillary lymph node after two months of default by the patient for adjuvant treatment. Patient had undergone right axillary lymph node dissection.The patient had then undergone adjuvant radiotherapy to the chest wall and right axillary region and is now completely free of disease two years after treatment.
